Reference & Research Consulting

Wake Tech's librarians provide reference and instruction in support of the curriculum and other information needs of the Wake Tech community. Combining the resources of a traditional print reference collection, online reference tools, and over 50 databases, we offer one-on-one help with information needs as well as long-term research for both faculty and students. As your students' research advocates, we help them develop lifelong information literacy skills.

We assist with:

  • topic choice and search strategies
  • identifying and accessing books and articles, using the catalog and databases
  • understanding the different attributes and purposes of scholarly and popular information
  • making good website choices
  • proper citations of materials

How? The library provides multiple venues for getting your questions answered!
